Executive Summary

Industrial software projects not only have to deal with the number of features in the software system. Also issues like quality, flexibility, reusability, extensibility, developer and user acceptance are key factors in these days. An architecture paradigm targeting those issues are extension mechanisms which are for example used by component frameworks. The main contribution of this paper is to identify software extension mechanism characteristics derived from "State-of-the-art" software frameworks. These identified characteristics will benefit developers with selecting and creating extension mechanisms.
